The two Winnebago Class B motor homes in production as of 2015 are the Era and Travato. The Era is based on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cargo van, while the Travato is converted from a Ram ProMaster van. The Travato is available with either a gasoline or diesel engine, while the Era is available with a choice of diesel engines. The Travato has an additional 5 inches of interior width over the Era, but it is also over 3 feet shorter. Travato models are also less expensive than Era motor homes, with a recommended price starting at $89,074 versus $108,759 for the Era.

Both the Era and Travato offer luxury options found on larger Winnebago models, including Ultraleather furniture and Corian countertops. Ultraleather is a proprietary synthetic fabric that has the feel of leather but is much more durable than similar synthetics, while Corian is a synthetic countertop material that can resemble marble or other high-end materials. Other features of Winnebago's Class B motor homes include showers, optional infotainment and sound systems, and a powered retractable porch awning available on the Era.
